The 25-year-old achieved his goal of debuting in the Ryder Cup with the PGA Championship victory and is back in action for the first time since with his attention refocused to win the Race to Dubai.

The young German enters the final round of the KLM Open with a one-shot lead after a round of 66 Saturday.
